Hospitality exists when you believe the other person is on your side.
As much as I love them, these long “trick lists” on Stack Overflow have a problem: they’re poorly organized with little narrative describing why you’d want to use a technique. This long homage to the command line is my attempt to remedy that situation.
Long is apt.
R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe, on creativity:
The best songs are the ones I don’t have to think about, the ones I don’t over-think or have to craft in order to complete. I think the unthought songs, the ones that come pouring out of me, are more real: the vomit songs. Losing My Religion was a vomit song. Man On The Moon. Sad Professor on the last album. Those are the songs that are truly inspired, they just come pouring out. I don’t feel I’m a holy conduit to some bigger thing that comes dropping from the heavens. It’s just something that I truly believe is inside all of us, whether we can access it or not.

Interesting tricks with the macro shot using water drop and the usage of glass for underwater shot. A few years ago Rukma and I used to experiment with stuff like this. Would love to try these again.
